David Vies For 140th Against Rep. Galloway
The two men both graduated from Pennsbury High School and have focused their campaigns on job creation.
Eric David, a Pennsbury High School graduate and candidate for the 140th Legislative District, believes jobs are the biggest issue on the minds of voters in Levittown.
The 35-year-old Republican candidate said he hopes to bring more business to the area and reform the state pension crisis. David questions why the area has so much critical infrastructure, yet not enough local jobs.
As a licensed Realtor, the housing market and refinancing rates are also important issues to David.
If elected, David said he hopes to work in Harrisburg to repair the problems that plague the state. He continued that many of the problems should have never happened.
Fairless Hills is where David resides with wife Sabrina and two young sons.
David is running against incumbent Democrat John Galloway, 52, for control of the district which includes all of Falls Township; the boroughs of Bristol, Morrisville, and Tullytown. The district also includes parts of Bristol and Middletown townships.
Galloway's campaign boast that he authored two bills to spur job growth and helped move forward construction of the Levittown Shopping Center since he took office in 2007.
The Bucks County Courier Times endorsed Galloway and called him and "effective lawmaker" in a late October piece.
Galloway became a source for controversy in 2011 when he was arrested for DUI in Harrisburg. In court, he agreed to a Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program and did not face jail time.
